ROY KEANE has taken another pop at Liverpool – despite Jurgen Klopp’s men hammering Spartak Moscow.

Philippe Coutinho netted a hat-trick as a stunning 7-0 win saw Reds through to the Champions League last 16 at Group E winners.

That means that they will avoid Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Roma – but could still land the likes of Bayern Munich, Juventus and Real Madrid.

And Manchester United legend Keane reckons we are yet to see what Reds are made of, claiming “they’ve beaten nobody” since a 4-0 win over Arsenal in August.

Keane said: “A comfortable night for them tonight, a good start and their attacking players certainly enjoyed it.

“But the big tests are yet to come for Liverpool.

“Clearly they’re beating these so-called lesser teams, and the same in the Premier League.

“But they’ve beaten nobody domestically and in Europe yet.”

“They’re just drifting nowhere.

“They’re neat and tidy, but we know what they are like defensively.

“Come the end of the season when the prizes are being given out, Liverpool will be nowhere near.

“At the back, there are question marks over the goalkeeper and there’s not too much about to say them.”

BAYERN MUNICH have zero interest in recalling Renato Sanches back from his nightmare loan spell at Swansea next month.

The 20-year-old Portuguese midfielder arrived in South Wales to huge fanfare in August as Paul Clement appeared to have pulled off quite the coup.

But the promising youngster has endured a horrible time of it at the Liberty Stadium and has been dropped to the bench in recent weeks.

Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes has no intention of bringing Sanches back to Bavaria next month.

He told Bild: “I assume that Hasan Salihamidzic [Sporting Director] talked to him on the phone.

“I’m surprised. I’m not worried about getting him back to Bayern.

“You also have to see if that makes sense. In midfield, we have no need.”

It is a nightmare situation for the man who won the Golden Boy award last year after helping Portugal to win Euro 2016.

Swansea are bottom of the table and face a trip to a rejuvenated Everton side this evening.

Sanches has only completed 90 minutes twice for the Swans in the Premier League and was completely left out of the squad for the win over West Brom and the defeat to Manchester City.

MANCHESTER CITY stars celebrated keeping up their hot start to the season, by going bowling.

Gabriel Jesus was joined by Ederson and Fernandinho after Pep Guardiola’s men thumped Tottenham 4-1 in the Premier League just 24 hours earlier.

Brazilian star Jesus appeared to be just as on target in the lanes as well as on the pitch this season too.

The City star – who’s scored 12 goals this term for club and country – took home the “golden pin”, showing off yet another victory.

Compatriot Fernandinho came in second as the City trio enjoyed their Sunday evening out at All Star Lanes in Manchester with a group of pals.

Wrapped-up warm to avoid the bitter chill Jesus strolled proudly outside the bowling alley sporting his golden pin, while laughing with his friends.

Following yet another big win, City appear to have one hand on the Premier League trophy already.

On the win, boss Guardiola revealed his side are so good, he wouldn’t have even made the starting XI in his prime.

HIT AND MISS Where are the top 50 teenagers in the world from 2007 now?

When asked if he could break into the current City team, the Spaniard revealed: “No way. Fernandinho is much, much better.”

But Guardiola is being realistic, quashing claims they could emulate Arsenal’s “Invincibles” season of 2003-04.
